Welcome to another episode of The Coach’s Circle Podcast!
Our show is all about showing you everything the world of coaching has to offer–what it is, what it isn’t, and whether it might be the right career choice for you.
Through our conversations with professionals in a variety of different mental health and wellness fields, you’ll gain valuable, real-world insight into their careers and consider how their experiences might impact your own career choices. Our interviews will feature coaches, therapists, counselors, personal trainers, and other professionals who incorporate coaching into their practices. Our hope is that these varied perspectives will help you come to understand exactly the type of coach you were meant to be.
Today’s special guest is Danielle LaSusa, a Philosophical Coach based in Portland, Oregon. She has a Ph.D. in Philosophy from Temple University and a Certification in Philosophical Counseling from the American Philosophical Practitioners Association.
- A discussion of the unique intersection of coaching and philosophy
- Why Greek philosophers were the original coaches
- How the struggles of motherhood helped Danielle find her story
- Why screening questions are important to discern between the need for coaching and therapy
- How philosophy and coaching use stories to help people make sense of their world
“The transition to parenthood is the most profoundly philosophical experience anyone can have. […] To bring a human consciousness into the world and then to be responsible for the human consciousness touches the being of being human in such a deep way. And we do not talk about motherhood like that in this culture.”
